How to bending aluminum without cracking it?

Aluminum breaking after bending can be a significant issue in various applications: The aluminum sheet or aluminum extrusion is easy to break after bending, or it will crack after anodizing bending. Many aluminum alloy processing companies are confused about this. Understanding the main reasons for this problem and implementing preventive measures is essential for achieving successful aluminum bending without failures. So, how to bend aluminum without breaking it? 9 main reasons and 6 tips for preventive measures for aluminum to break after bending.

Thickness and bending radius of aluminum profile bending

Thickness and bending radius of aluminum profile bending

Minimum Thickness: There is a minimum thickness that can be successfully bent without causing defects. Below this threshold, cracking or other forms of material failure may occur.

Minimum Bend Radius: The minimum bend radius is the smallest radius that the aluminum can be bent without causing cracking or excessive deformation. This value depends on the alloy, temper, and thickness of the material.
